I will be going, along with Zoso. We just haven't picked a day just yet to go.

I know WhiteRose and Oni are going. Also not sure when.

I had to copy-edit the dumbest opinion article yesterday that ended up not getting used anyway.

It was from someone who was so far left they were pissed off that Obama was even taking moderate stances on things. Even more so, this damned writer was so self-righteous. She (he?) was standing in front of NBC studios in L.A. yelling at Obama's motorcade as it "cowardly" drove by, wording it like they were angry he didn't pull over and answer all of their idiotic blatherings which the writer calls "words of sober wisdom."

There was a lot of swearing in it. And a lot of non-sequiturs. Like she calls Obama "President Pee-Pants" when referring to "his unnecessary army," and then calling Leno's chin a weapon of mass destruction.

It was like that episode of The Simpsons where Homer tries to be a food critic and to be sure he got 500 words out, he just wrote "Screw Flanders" over and over again, but with "Fuck Obama" thrown in wherever the writer felt it appropriate. No joke.



Anyway, the executive editor's writing to the writer's professor to say that sort of article isn't appropriate. I mean, her query letter was pretty much, "Hey, I'm in a writing class. I wrote this and you're going to print it" but with many more spelling and grammatical errors.

Sounds like stuff our campus conservatives say... but worse. They actually published something that the president of the club said during a feud between them an the campus Latino club over their bringing the Minutemen to campus. They published it unedited, with a disclaimer stating that it was unedited at the top, and then Duke (do you remember him from LBCC?) ripped him a new one. It was great.

Duke's still there? The Daily 49er's in good hands then.

I had my spring break this week. I can't believe it's almost over already, especially when I spent the better part of it visiting doctors and either being in pain or being dizzy. Oh well, at least the weekend should be good. The last one was pretty cool.

So I'm going to make a movie with about 25 other people, several of whom are very good at making sets/scripts/props/other movie stuff.

I'm feeling excited!

Great... a source is out of the state and the story's due Sunday night. And the damn story is a profile piece about him.

I really hope the assigning editor is cool with pushing back the deadline. >o<

Well, life has been nothing if not interesting these past few days.

I just got home from driving through two counties to check in on, take care of, and eventually pick up my boyfriend's brother from the hospital. He had been dirtbiking and broke his arm. His friends bailed on him because they were paranoid that someone might want to search their car (and would discover all sorts of pot, meth, etc inside). I just think his friends are selfish douches, is all.

Around 3 p.m., earlier in the day, Brandon and I had been hiking and rock climbing. We were tired and were about to have lunch when we got the call from his dad to pick up Joey who was in a hospital 85 miles from where we were.

Anyway, they didn't discharge Joey until 11:30 p.m. After finally getting back in the area, we spent another hour or so driving around looking for an open pharmacy to fill his pain meds prescription.

Last night was spent hanging around circus freaks and hot cosplayer girls, eating green flan, watching puppet shows, and making out in the Porta Party.

The night before, going past midnight, was working on a special edition of the Daily Titan concerning the accident involving a rookie pitcher for the Angels, a drunk driver, and a couple CSUF students.

And now as I'm checking my grades following an exam in one of my comm classes, it appears I set the curve. I really thought I fucked up on it.

Well, it's 3 a.m. here. Good night... good morning.. whatev...

Happy Ēostre, everyone!

I've been promoted to the opinion editor of the Daily Titan. It's my third day with the official title and I'm bushed. Monday through Wednesday tend to be late nights and I've got a couple papers due tomorrow.

Thankfully they don't have me working Sundays. They got someone else to fill in on that day because they didn't want to "overwhelm" me.

Anyway, I had a really weird dream last night. Seemed so real, though. I dreamt a Jet Blue plane flew directly over my house and landed on the houses behind mine, completely obliterating them. Well, hopefully it was was just a dream.

Man I'm a heavy sleeper. So, apparently, our house is hit by lightning this morning. Huge flash, loud noises, etc. I somehow slept right through it. It didn't even happen that early in the morning, it was like 11:30 am.

Wow, man... just... wow.

So a big truck went by today and shook the apartment. For a few minutes I wondered if there had been an earthquake.

I love the fact that 471 (reporting for the Daily Titan) people talk down to me for "just" being a 201 (reporting for the mass media) student.

Last week, I went on assignment with a couple 471 girls (who weren't aware that I was an assistant editor) and they kept wanting to do all the talking. When we got back to the office and one of them decided (while on deadline) that she was tired and would go home instead of writing the story, and I volunteered, the other horned in and glared down at me (I'm somewhat short compared to people in the office) saying, "You don't need this story. I do! I can get credit for it and you're still learning how to write a lead."

Anyway, an hour later, the story's still not done and the second one leaves. I write the story, get printed, and was promoted this week.

471 students have to turn in their editorials, commentaries, etc, to me.

Anyway, I'm covering another event tonight for the paper, because those same 471 students decided it wasn't worth their time. Great reporting, ladies.

.... idiots. So what did you get promoted to?

So my boyfriend's laptop just stopped working last night. He shut it down because the battery was really low and when he went to turn it back on once we got home it wouldn't turn on, so he has to ship it to Gateway to have them fix it. Kinda sucks really.

Opinion editor.

My promotion actually had nothing to do with the fact that I wrote the story for the special edition. The editor-in-chief (along with her second in command) used to work at the Viking. They figured since I had so much experience I could just step in to a position soon-to-be vacated by a graduating editor. So I've pretty much just been doing his job for the past week.


So Brandon and I hit 5 years yesterday. Went to the Santa Barbara Zoo. The birds around the cafe there are vicious, man. They're like little herons and they actually fly onto people's tables and steal their hamburgers.

Had a nice dinner after strolling around a small town in Ventura County.


EDIT: I wrote out that story this morning and sent it to the news desk for copy editing and such before it goes to print. The head news editor called me to confirm one of the ranks of the marines that I'd interviewed. As it turned out, I had his old rank listed (first lieutenant) and not the one he retired as (lieutenant colonel). Even a small thing wrong like that can get journalists fired in the real world because it shows that you don't check facts before something's printed and goes public.

As it turns out the OC Register published the story saying the guy's a first lieutenant, and put it in the freakin' lead.

I called my editor. He thought it was hysterical.

That is funny. Congrats on hitting the five year mark, I can only hope to get that far.

Summer has hit work early it seems. We made over 3000 tonight... 3000 on a Sunday closing shift in April. It's insane!

You and Ben? Please! You've already got the first year down and I know the two of you can go the distance.

Yep, it already feels like summer. It was freakin' 90 degree F in the shade. In the late afternoon.

So, thanks to this happy heatwave, Ben and I decided we are getting an air conditioner for the apartment. Oh the joys of not having to pay utilities!

I find it hilarious that Bush's term of endearment for Karl Rove was "Turd Blossom."

I think I've developed a strange interest in Shannon Tweed. Not like a lesbionic interest or anything, just a fascination. Hmmm... Maybe it's her unconventional relationship with Gene Simmons.
